I've recently relocated to the L.A. area, but I consider myself "Midwestern" (reluctantly) having lived most of my life in rural Iowa. I have an English degree from Drake University and have spent time living in Rome and Southern Germany, respectively. Travel is a love of mine, as well as witticisms and red wine. Humor is very important to me, to be perfectly cliche. Laugh at my jokes and we'll be golden. (90% kidding.) I'm a dog person but a lover of all animals. (But dogs are best, let's be serious.) I'm a little blunt, a little narcissistic, a lot inappropriate, and just shamelessly dorky. Get in touch if you feel compelled.
